Research still not yielding any tasty insights today.

Here is the accumulation of sketches from the last couple of weeks of undirected doodling in the wee hours of night/morning that haven't resulted in complete alphabets yet:

For some reason I like both of these directions, but find both of them very difficult. Mendota is an old, old idea, for which I have a moderately clear idea in my head of what it's supposed to look like, and only now am I getting kind of close to it. See here, here, here, here, here, or here for previous attempts, which look ludicrously bad to me now. I like the current m at least, and the a is getting there, but it still feels unbalanced.

Miroslav is kind of a mix of Slavkappen and Identity Theft, I guess. I might lean towards making it even pointier.

By the way: Hornschemeier's "Mother, Come Home" is a pretty good comic book. My excuse for reading it is that I was flipping through a few books in the comics section of the Carnegie library, and, I kid you not, the inside cover of MCH in its border featured perfectly realistic math scribbling, including what is very definitely the disjunction elimination rule written in natural deduction style. With labels for discharged hypotheses and everythin'.
